Black Panther actress, Letitia Wright went from idolizing acting to building a relationship with God.
Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri, King T’Challa’s little sister in the Marvel movie recently shared how she walked away from acting for a minute to focus on her Christian faith.
“My happiness wasn’t dependent on that, it was dependent on my relationship with God.”
“I was going through a lot, a very difficult time in my life and I just needed to take a break from acting because I really idolized it. So I came off from it and I went on a journey to discover God and my relationship with God and I became a Christian,” Wright told U.K. ITV show “This Morning” earlier this month. “It really just gave me so much love and light within myself. I felt secure and I felt like I didn’t need validation from anyone else or from getting a part. My happiness wasn’t dependent on that, it was dependent on my relationship with God.”
Letitia, who became all of our little sister after her performance in Black Panther, said she is grateful for her faith which continues to keep her centered.
“I’m centered in who I am and I’m really grateful. I’m not perfect,” the Guyanese-born British actress said. “Especially as a Christian you’re not perfect. But you’re walking everyday and trying to just stay connected and yeah, it’s helped me a lot, so I’m really grateful.”[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0fQpdszI1A[/embedyt]
